Careers at DrDoctor

Want to do something worthwhile? To improve the lives of millions of people in the UK? We do. DrDoctor is the UKs leading healthcare start-up and we want you to join us. Our mission is to transform the way healthcare is delivered by building clever technology to help providers and patients work together for more effective care - at lower cost.

About us We're working with leading trusts like Guys and St Thomas, Nottingham, and Frimley Health to deliver a digitally enabled, patient centric NHS. Currently over 50million NHS appointments have been managed on our system and we've got really ambitious aims for 2022. We provide transformative healthcare technology. We've spent years improving hospitals, where we kept seeing the same problems again and again. We solve those using technology. Together with our hospital partners we use common sense technology, applied in a sensible, real world way to put patients in the centre of their care. In doing so we significantly reduce administration (big drop in call centre volumes), make sure patients are in the right place at the right time (DNA rates drop by 30%) and improve the quality of care. Our vision is to transform the way care is delivered. To build technology that will allow the NHS to do more with the same resources. To help a generation of informed, relaxed patients in their journey through healthcare.

DrDoctor was founded in 2012. We're a team of nearly 100 people, based out of the Health Foundry near Waterloo station.

We're growing fast - and run a 'remote-first' culture, where our people are welcome to come to the office to socialise and collaborate but the vast majority of our people work from home most of the time.

  • 4 x Duvet Days

    For those days you just don't feel like working. This can be for mental health, time away from your screen or just a little bit drained. These are to look after yourself.

  • Therapy Sessions

    Looking after mental health is a big deal for us, so our people are able to use OpenUp for unlimited therapy sessions if they need.
